The key to Middle East peace is getting Palestinians to say 'yes' by Aharon Shapiro

7953a93e094bd9f120254beabc78cb5f6170c501.png Slavish conformism to conventional wisdom has done practically nothing to resolve the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel, trapping the sides in a stalemate for decades. Yet, in The Sydney Morning Herald, academic Paul Duffill relied upon traditionally unhelpful cliches in his analysis of recent Australian developments vis-à-vis Israel and the Palestinians (“Gap between parties becomes a chasm on Middle East peace”). ...

UN using Israeli radar system to protect bases in Mali by Al Venter

The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) is using radars made by Israeli company RADA Electronic Industries to provide its bases with early warning of incoming projectiles, according to an industry source. The source told Jane’s that three systems using RADA’s Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar (MHR) family were set up at outlying MINUSMA bases in late November and early December 2018. Each system consists of four ieMHR radars mounted on a tripod to provide 360° coverage of the surrounding airspace. The active electronically scanned array (AESA) S-band pulse doppler radars are compact and have no moving parts, making them easy to deploy and “relatively maintenance free”, the source said ...

"Instead, it is the Palestinian Authority that undermines its own capacity and development. The PA should stop spending 7% of its annual budget on inciting and paying terrorist salaries, and instead use it to develop its infrastructure and help its people." The PA spent $355 million of international donors' money in 2017 on paying salaries and other benefits to convicted or "martyred" terrorists and their families. ...

Why did Abbas proclaim the dissolution of PA parliament? by Pinhas Inbari

joint_war_hamas.jpg?resize=500%2c282.png On Dec. 22, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas announced he will dissolve the Palestinian Parliament that was elected in accordance with the Oslo accords, to be followed by new elections. Abbas is attempting to revive the old PLO, but organizations such as the Popular and Democratic Fronts, and Islamic Jihad, as well as other parties and civil society groups, stand by Hamas. With Hamas, they have established a joint war room to manage the riots at the Gaza border fence. Following the move of the other organizations toward Hamas, Abbas was not able to convene the PLO institutions in Ramallah, which very likely led to his resolution to dissolve the Legislative Council. In any case, the Legislative Council has not convened since 2006. ...

If Israel has such bad PR, why does it remain so popular? by Andrew Silow-Carroll

Israel remains hugely popular among the American public.

Congress remains firmly pro-Israel. Yes, a Pew survey in January showed a wide partisan divide over Israel, with 79 percent of Republicans and only 27 percent of Democratic sympathizing more with Israel than with the Palestinians. But the poll questions forced respondents to choose between Israelis and Palestinians (why not both?), and the results may have reflected only the deeply partisan nature of American politics — not anything you can hasbarah away. ...
